BlackBerry has announced that, for the second year running, the company has achieved the highest score in all six use cases of the Gartner Critical Capabilities for High-Security Mobility Management.
High-security mobility management is a subset of the enterprise mobility management market, which serves organizations with stringent requirements. When security is a high priority, security and risk management leaders should pursue best-of-breed solutions for each platform they plan to support.
High-security, managed mobility solutions do not correspond to a single, specific mobile technology market. The solutions that provide the highest level of security require users to accept reductions in scope and flexibility, which affects users’ experiences.
This may involve expensive, specialized hardware, software and cryptography, as well as reduced choices in devices and features.
Security and risk management leaders responsible for endpoint and mobile security strategies should:
- Choose best-of-breed solutions for each platform they plan to support, if security is their highest priority.
- Choose products that will support business processes without undue disruptions or interference, because solutions with high-security qualifications may not meet usability expectations.
- Plan tiers of access that support less-secure configurations for less-sensitive tasks, especially in high-security organizations.
Out of the 15 vendors evaluated, BlackBerry received the following:
- Highest score in High-Security Government Grade
- Highest score in High-Security Commercial
- Highest score in Shared Data
- Highest score in Shared Devices
- Highest score in Non-Employee
- Highest score in Bring Your Own (BYO)
BlackBerry was also positioned a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for EMM for the second year in a row. And the company also received the highest score in two use cases in Gartner’s 2017 Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Mobility Management for Regulated Industries and Unmanaged Device Support.
